Hovey Announces Run for Alabama State Senate



Lee County, Alabama, native and Auburn University graduate Jay Hovey has announced his candidacy for Alabama State Senate District 27, covering portions of Tallapoosa, Lee and Russell counties.

“A region of our significance deserves representation in Montgomery we can be proud of,” Hovey said. ” It is time for a change to someone who can build bridges, facilitate connections and has service to constituents as his primary motivation. I believe that someone is me.”

Hovey currently serves on the Auburn City Council as representative for Ward 7. “I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful and vibrant community, and it has been an honor and privilege to represent my neighbors, family and friends as councilman. The opportunity to extend that service further would allow me to expand positive impact on our region.”

Hovey has always had a heart for serving his community. He began working for the city of Auburn as a student firefighter while obtaining his degree from Auburn University. He has held a variety of community leadership roles and in 2020 was appointed by Lt. Governor Ainsworth to serve on the state’s Small Business Advisory Commission where he is currently in his second term.

Hovey works as a mortgage loan originator with AuburnBank. He and his wife Anna have been married 20 years and are members of Providence Baptist Church where they have both served in various volunteer leadership capacities, including Hovey’s role as deacon.

The state’s primary election will be held May 24, 2022. For more information, contact jayhoveyforalabama@gmail.com.
